Winter Storage

Or any time of year storage for that matter....

If you are looking for somewhere nice and dry to keep your rib over the winter then the farmer where I keep Panther has space.

Location is near Bridgewater about 10 mins from the M5

Its a large modern cow barn (now unused as the farmer now runs a caravan site) Compleatly dry etc etc....

Cost - bargin - 5 per week

PM me for further details if interested - I don't want to post all the details here

Very reasonable...

I'm looking at an ex chicken shed for 2.20 per ft per week in West Sussex.

The "management" has strictly forbidden the boat to sit in the garden (don't even mention changing the wife - she owns the b****y house )

Not using the RIB in Winter! Shame on you.

Quicksilver was out in a F7 last week and it will be out on New Years Day 2003 no matter how cold it is.

Keith,

Welcome back from the "frozen" north you will have to get some stronger ([{brackets}]) to cope with a F7.

I do use my RIB all year round - I just want somewhere else to keep it that don't cost the earth plus some. (Yes I know that a SIB does not have these problems )

Hi Ribald

Re the F7: It was blowing from the East, right on to our coastline, result HUGE breakers and far too dangerous to launch. So I poped over to Portmahomack, the other side of the peninsular, which is in the lee. Still great fun though!

I've put Quicksilver to bed now until the end of December. Fortunately I have a large garage at our house in Scotland and I can leave her inflated and awaiting my next jaunt.

Hi Keith,

Welcome back. Sibsters with your size not only "do it in all weathers", but they also "do it standing up" .
